Resources for UNCG Faculty and Staff
UNCG faculty and staff can engage in global and international activities through Hosting International Visiting Scholars, Going Abroad as a Scholar, Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs, and Promoting Study Abroad.
Hosting International Visiting Scholars — The Exchange Visitor Program, administered by the US Department of State (DOS), allows the University to use the J-1 Exchange Visitor immigration classification to invite or employ foreign professors, research scholars, short-term scholars and specialists in the United States temporarily. If you would like to invite an international visiting scholar, please read the quick guide and follow the IPC procedures. You may also want to share the following resources with interested scholars:
- Coming as a Visiting Scholar
- UNCG at a Glance
- J-1 Visa/Status Overview for Prospective Scholars
- Maintaining J-1 Visa/Status for Current J-1 Scholars
- Housing Options
- Getting Around Greensboro
- Family Life
Going Abroad as a Scholar — Faculty may consider going abroad to one of UNCG’s partnering universities or apply for Fulbright Scholar Program funding to go abroad. IPC also offers Kohler funding opportunities to support Institutional Linkages, Internationalizing the Curriculum, Research, Special Projects, Student Programs, and Teaching. Faculty who are presenting a paper at conferences overseas may be interested in applying for the ITF Travel Fund. Faculty may also consider applying for the International Exchange Assignments to exchange places with a colleague from an overseas partner institution for a semester or an entire academic year.
Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs — UNCG faculty can participate in faculty-led study abroad program. If you are interested, you may want to check out the Faculty Guidelines, and read the Program Director Handbook.
Promoting Study Abroad — Promoting study abroad through advising and teaching would allow more UNCG students to be aware of the various opportunities for them to become globally engaged. Please help share the Going Abroad information with students you are working with.
